New Delhi: Imran Khan on Sunday praised India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni for his heroic innings of 113 not out in the first ODI against Pakistan in Chennai, saying it was one of best knocks under pressure.
Coming to bat in the 10th over, when India were reeling at 29 for five, Dhoni single-handedly took India's total to 227 for six.
"I think he played really well… In fact, it was an exceptional innings under pressure. If he hadn't played the knock, this match would have been over in two-three hours," Imran told a television channel.
"Under the circumstances, this was one of the best innings," he added.
